Set practice pace times using a swimmer’s 500 goal time

Stop watch shows splits in a bar graph
Watch can display a graphic chart of the splits. This is a photo of a 500 free swum at a high school meet by our super sophomore.
  • Alternative to a T30

Rob Emary posted that he has switched away from using the T30 test set to using a goal time 500. Then he plugs that goal time into Urbanchek‚Äôs chart. 

That method has give tremendous success with 200s, 500s, 1,000s and 1,650s.

Swims basically kids going those goal times.
